TOLEDO, Ohio — Toledo firefighter Myles Copeland became famous over the summer when he saved a referee’s life during a basketball game he was playing in. Now, he’s trying to make sure others are prepared if they’re ever in that situation.
On Monday, he returned to his alma mater of St. John’s and spent the afternoon teaching the basketball team how they could potentially save a life by performing CPR.
“With my story and becoming a firefighter, I see the importance of CPR and how little people know about it,” Copeland said. “Being able to spread awareness through my story, connect back with my high school, it’s just something that’s important to me.”
